Class I Math
Class I math curriculum is designed around the core objectives of place value to 100, addition and subtraction facts, addition and subtraction within 100, writing and solving number sentences and word problems, and patterns. Students also work with time, money, and geometry. Students are given a wide variety of hands-on experiences and exercises in practical computation. Students work on critical thinking through problem solving, reasoning, and generalization. Simulation activities coincide with specific math units to connect application of knowledge to real life events. Cooperative learning and varied small group interactive activities support the concepts presented. Mathematical ideas are related to other areas of the curriculum so that students acquire broader notions about the interconnectedness to other fields.
